Australia’s leading provider of in-school workshops for teen girls since 2003.

Created by experienced educators with a proven track record of success, Enlighten Education is an award winning for-profit social impact business.  Our evidence based programs help tween and teenage girls* decode the mixed messages they receive and help them develop self-esteem and confidence; they are designed to be delivered in schools and are targeted at students aged 10–18. Our school workshops cover everything from helping young people manage their friendships, to increasing their sense of gratitude, to becoming advocates for social change. Enlighten will encourage your students to reach their own conclusions and to know their own minds. Rather than telling young people what to do, we focus on informing, inspiring and empowering them. We encourage your students to be discerning consumers and critical thinkers and to find their own voice and power in a complex world.

We also believe learning should be fun. Enlighten workshops provide a positive, engaging range of experiences that teens deeply enjoy from start to finish.

Your choice of half- or full-day programs can help transform your students into thinking, confident young people. Testimonials from many of Australia’s and New Zealand’s top schools and leading experts in education and psychology are proof of the programs’ success. And with management experience at secondary school level, our team has a complete understanding of school structure and requirements, timetables and syllabus outcomes.

Please take a moment to read through the Enlighten programs and to meet our team. We would be happy to meet with you in person to discuss any questions you might have, and to help tailor a program to suit your needs.

We know that the Enlighten Education experience has been amazing for the tens of thousands of young people we have been privileged to work with; we are sure it will be for your students, too.

* We understand young people may be LGBTQI, gender diverse or living with an intersex variation. Our workshops are highly inclusive; when working with young people, we avoid using gendered pronouns, challenge discriminatory language, and encourage young people to question limiting gender stereotypes.

Enlighten Education is proud to have joined Together 4 Youth, a collective uniting to amplify the voice of young people and support them through education into thriving futures. Our fellow alliance members include Mission Australia, Reach and Raise.
